New York, NY
Join BAMSA, The Center, and the A/P/A Institute for another installment of the Multiple Identity Speaker Series: Monsters, Messiahs, or Something Else? Mixed-Race in Science Fiction Movies—Eric Hamako's presentation on mixed-race people in science fiction movies and the media. Popular movies are telling stories about mixed-race, but what are they saying? Will vigorous hybrid messiahs herald racial salvation? Will degenerate hybrid monsters cause a racial apocalypse? Are you prepared to talk about and talk back to the movies that students love? We'll explore white supremacist and Christian supremacist ideas about mixed-race people prevalent in current science fiction movies like Harry Potter, Blade, and Underworld and why people shouldn't believe the hype… or the hate.
This event is free and open to the public. Please RSVP at email@example.com.
